In the intro to the GD lyrics book , hunter mentioned one of the reservations he had with publishing the lyrics, was that he likes the idea of "misheard lyrics ",
that sometimes, it makes things interesting . I wonder, has anyone else heard the lyrics from "West LA" as "Looking for a shadow ( instead of "chateau", 21 rooms, but one will do". The metaphoric, possibilities of looking to live in a shadow ( with 21 rooms ) I think might be even more interesting , Or make it , as some of my old friends would say, more "stoney ".
